BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, October 27, 2008 (Land Warfare 2008) — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has introduced the Falcon Watch RF-5408-VP Remote Video Processor, a new, easy-to-deploy system for capturing video segments from remote locations. The Remote Video Processor broadens the capability of the Harris Falcon Watch Remote Surveillance System to provide timely, actionable intelligence that enhances real-time decision-making.
The Falcon Watch Remote Video Processor is a covert unattended system combining an NTSC or PAL video camera and Falcon Watch frame processing capability with a Digital Video Recorder. The DVR will record a video segment whenever it is cued by a Falcon Watch unattended ground sensor monitoring a specific area of interest. The system automatically transmits high-value still imagery through the Falcon Watch RF-5405V-GW Intelligent Gateway so that the imagery can be monitored at a command center.
"With the release of the Remote Video Processor, Harris is providing its customers with the most complete portfolio of remote sensing and surveillance products for both military and law enforcement needs," said Robert Post, Product Manager, Falcon Watch Systems. "The Falcon Watch system is ideal for evidentiary missions such as drug and smuggled goods interdiction, terrorist and criminal activity and safe-house monitoring. With this system, military and law enforcement personnel will be provided with improved visual intelligence that will give them a better understanding of a situation in planning a response."
The Falcon Watch Remote Video Processor, like other components of the Falcon Watch system, is designed to operate in harsh environments for lengthy periods of time. Retrieved video is viewed at the Falcon Watch RF-5410 Sensor Management Application running on a laptop in the field or at the intelligence center.
